Gymnastics

Gymnastics (1st-12th grades)

Gymnastics concentrates on floor skills that develop strength, coordination, balance and flexibility. DDC&G runs a noncompetitive, recreational program including tumbling and floor exercises, beginners through advanced, learn mat skills according to individual capabilities. Jumps, leaps, and conditioning are all reinforced in gymnastics.

Acrobatics (3rd- 12th grade)

Acrobatics (or Acro) is about flexibility and control. This technique is a popular choice for students bridging the gap between skills in the gym and the dance studio! The class focuses on leg extensions, holds on the floor (headstands, elbow stands, and chest stands), and partnering tricks. The class will also work on gymnastics fundamentals; a majority of acrobatic tricks evolve from basic skills such as handstands and bridges.
